The Ayurvedic Diet


Do you drink six cups of coffee to get through the day? Do you feel bloated, sleep-deprived and tired? Are you on a diet of salami-pizza-alcohol that often leaves you reaching for that box of medicines? If yes, this is the book for you. Ayurvedic expert Reenita Malhotra Hora offers you a helping hand out of the negative cycle you have trapped yourself in. In three simple steps she teaches you the basics of Ayurvedic nutrition: – First, get to know your body and mind by understanding the subtle variations of the three doshas – vata, pitta and kapha – that comprise you, so you know which food combinations are most nutritious. – Second, since food is life source, realize the essential guna in the different food items you consume. – Third, consume only those foods that balance the elements of the six Ayurvedic ritus or seasons – Grishma, Varsha, Sharad, Hemant, Shishir, Vasant – so you are in harmony with nature. A one-stop, easy-to-use, jargon-free guide to nutritional wellness and a happier, healthier life.
